Yahoo Sports: In a parallel universe, USC-Alabama and Michigan-Washington already would have played. Then Ohio State-Oregon and Texas-Louisiana State would tangle Saturday, two titanic matchups tussling for prime-time attention.
Instead, on the first Saturday of Power Five college football in 2020, we’ve got Iowa State and Louisiana-Lafayette as arguably the game of the day, even though ESPN College GameDay will broadcast from Wake Forest, where the Demon Deacons welcome No. 1 Clemson, a near-five-touchdown favorite.
The fight for racial equality and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic are more important this college football season than the games being played.
